The Hera (F3J) won the 1998 Canadian F3J Nationals, and had several wins in other local contests. It has been chosen by a dozen top pilots for the US F3J Team trials in July 1999. Both designs are made, using the best knowledge in hollow core molded wings. The wings are a beauty, in airfoil respect and surface finish. It has nothing to envy to an Esprit or similar glider, everything is perfect: fit, finish and performance. The long tail arm gives the Hera a smooth, gentle and predictable handling. It can handle tight continuous thermal turns with minor input, a must to make the most out of the lightest thermal. The S7035 has excellent climb rate, a wider speed range as the SD7037 and consequently better L/D. We think that there are three aspects which make a good TD glider:
  1. the handling for clean thermal turns and accurate landing.
  2. a clean, efficient airfoil for a wide speed range and a high L/D,  to increases the working range far beyond others.
  3. a low wing loading, to out climb other in the same thermal.

All these aspects are packed in the Hera for the demanding  thermal duration competitor.

Standard kit content:
Strong colored Fiberglas fuse with removable nose cone and molded servo tray. V-tail pushrods are installed. The Hera has an adjustable tow hook to optimize hand tows.
